You may be thinking the photo above is a hot rod from days gone by.....
"A rat rod is a style of hot rod or custom car that, in most cases, imitates (or exaggerates) the early hot rods of the 40s, 50s & early 60s. It is not to be confused with the somewhat closely related "traditional" hot rod, which is an accurate re-creation or period-correct restoration of a hot rod from the same era.
Most rat rods appear "unfinished", whether they actually are or not, with just the bare essentials to be driven.
The rat rod is the visualization of the idea of function over form. Rat rods are meant to be driven, not shown off. Sometimes the customization will include using spare parts, parts from another car altogether, or even non-car parts."
My husband started with a '31 Hudson Coupe. He found it in a farmers field with an electric fence going through it. He had to dismantle the fence to get the body out.
An assortment of parts were used in the construction of this car. These tail lights are from a '37 Chrysler.
Can you see the hole in the door?
That would be a bullet hole which passes clean through the car.
